Description
This exotic looking perennial grass makes is undeniably impressive. The sturdy, upright stems, reaching up to 180cm (70") tall, are draped in variegated ribbon-like foliage with wide cream margins. Grown for its dramatic foliage and bamboo-like stature, the Giant Reed makes an elegant pot-plant for the conservatory. Arundo donax 'Variegata' may also be grown at the back of moist, sunny borders adding height and architecture in late summer. When grown outdoors, this half-hardy perennial should be lifted and moved to a warm, frost free position during the winter months, to be replanted the following spring. Height: 180cm (70"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Variegated forms of Arundo donax are less hardy than the species and require winter protection if intended for outdoor cultivation. Grow Giant reed plants in reliable moist, rich fertile soil. Choose a position in full sun with shelter from strong winds. Alternatively grow Arund plants in large containers in a frost free conservatory.
More Info
Arundo requires a reliably moist soil. Water frequently, particularly during dry periods in summer. Cut back the tattered foliage in late autumn. Plants grown outdoors in all but the warmest parts of the UK, should be lifted and potted up in autumn. Store them in a frost free greenhouse until spring when all risk of frost has passed.
